I can't travel far from Herne Hill. I would like to know the understand why all Herne Hill solicitors are not on all mortgage company panels?
Pre- 2008 most banks demonstrated an attitude to risk which differs from the current day. The Financial Services Authority in 2010 carried out a thematic review into fraud which concluded: know the lawyers on your panel. Consequently, mortgage companies have subsequently requiredmore data from law firms about their operations and the staff who work for them and set certain criteria such as completing a minimum amount of transactions. Thousands of law practices have found themselves excluded from lender panels even though they had an exemplary disciplinary record, no complaints and no claims and didn't just 'dabble' in conveyancing. Many firms found it impossible meet the criteria of amount of transactions the lenders set.
How do I check that the solicitor carrying out my conveyancing in Herne Hill is on the lender’sconveyancing panel? I am looking to avoid the situation of having one lawyer for me and one for Aldermore thus spending £187.00 plus VAT in supplemental legal fees.

I have just started marketing my basement apartment in Herne Hill.Conveyancing solicitors are to be appointed soon however I have just received a half-yearly service charge invoice – Do I pay up?
It best that you clear the maintenance contribution as usual given that all rents and service charges will be apportionedon completion, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially
